Why Quest Diagnostics?
Prescription drug misuse and patient non-compliance are growing problems. Periodic urine drug testing for prescribed pain medications can help physicians ensure patients are consistent with their prescription treatment plan. Our tests and services help create an efficient, reliable prescription drug monitoring program, including a detailed medMATCH® report with interpretations based on prescription information.
As the industry leader in drug testing, we conduct approximately nine million drug tests annually, and we have the resources you and your patients need. Our periodic urine drug testing, along with other patient monitoring tools, can help you identify potential misuse.
We use standard clinical chemistry for screening of drug classes and, if ordered, we automatically confirm positive results using Mass Spectrometry analysis. We deliver easy–to-read lab reports electronically and securely. Our expert toxicology specialists and toxicologists can answer your questions and address your concerns. Just call our Prescription Drug Monitoring Consultation Hotline at 877-40-RX-Tox (1-877-407-9869).
We offer a menu specifically designed for prescription drug monitoring with a complete drug testing menu [add link to full test menu]. New to our menu are synthetic cannabinoids and stimulants as well as genetic testing. We now provide pharmacogenetic testing [add link to genetic testing page] of cytochrome P450 2D6, 2C19, 3A4, and 3A5.
We recognize that behind every specimen and result there is a human life— a life whose quality may be improved when pain medications are used as prescribed. However, these medications can be dangerous when misused. Instituting a drug monitoring program can help protect your patients. We work with approximately 2,000 Patient Service Centers in communities from coast-to-coast; we've made testing easy and convenient for you and your patients. With so many locations we also participate with many health plans.
We’re constantly seeking to deliver the tools and services you need to manage your practice, and monitoring prescription drug use is no exception. Our Care360® suite of technology products is designed to work together to streamline office procedures. Our integrated ePrescribing component can help identify potential interactions or contraindications for each patient, as well as track medications prescribed by other physicians.
